I docked this one star only because I felt the tart lemon overpowered the other flavors too much. However, it is great nutrition so I will probably make this smoothie again with half a lemon next time. Also, in spite of distinctly remembering picking out some parsley at the store, I somehow didn't end up with it at home, so I threw in a little fresh mint instead. I am sure the parsley would be good, also, but I did like the mint enough to use it again. Something else I did was put in the avocado pit and leave the lemon peel on. I am sure we all know the great nutritional benefits of avocados and lemons, but did you know the avocado pit and the lemon peel actually are the parts of those fruits with the most nutrition? I know, it sounds crazy to put the pit in and I am not sure if I would have dared to try it in my Ninja Pro (maybe the new Ninja Ultima could do it) but my new Vitamix didn't miss a beat. My drink was smooth and creaamy. By the way, my dog begged for some, too, and to my surprise, liked it--although he did seem a little puzzled by the tartness.
